Christopher Bailey is revisiting the Burberry archives.
The brand's creative director has delved into its history, pulled out a handful of its signature references and created the Burberry Icons Collection.
The new, accessories-driven collection bows for fall and marks Burberry's 150th anniversary. It will become a permanent part of the Burberry offering with regular additions each season.
"I started with the icons that immediately came to mind - the quilting, the check, the rivets and the Prorsum knight," said Bailey during a walk-through at the Burberry showroom here near Piccadilly Circus.
"This collection is about looking at Burberry's past from a different point of view rather than getting too entrenched in the history. There's a traditional base, but it's translated in a modern way."
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
